Insurance & Fees

 

Please inform the receptionist of any type of insurance coverage you may have so your claims can be handled properly.  You are responsible for knowing the specific rules of your insurance company with regard to office visits, pre-authorizations, second opinions, and follow-ups.  We do not accept liens in accident cases or insurance disputes. Reports to attorneys must be paid in advance of their preparation.

 

Deductibles and Co-payment amounts are the patient’s responsibility. Any co-payments owed will be due at the time of service and it is illegal for us to waive them.

 

Payment is requested for office services at the time they are rendered for cash patients and for patients covered under insurance companies we are not contracted (“Out-of-Network”) with. 

 

If we are contracted (“In-Network”) with your insurance plan, you will be responsible for any co-pay affiliated with your coverage and your insurance company will be billed for the remainder of the office visit. If there is a balance after the insurance companies adjustment, the patient is responsible for the remainder of the cost.
